Lions defensive coordinator: Read option will harm QBs

In an interview with, Lions defensive coordinator Gunther Cunningham made a case that states how using the read option will injure quarterbacks. Here it is: 

"The problem is for those quarterbacks, one of these days, one of them is not going to walk off," Cunningham told the team's website. "It's a lot of pressure on him to physically do that. I think we all understand what the issues are and how to play it. I reflect back on my college days and it wasn't that hard to remember all that stuff because it put a lot of pressure on me in those days and it does in this league, too." 

This guy makes a good case. Teams should use other formations like the pistol offense instead.
